In America there are opportunities to donate your body after death for various purposes, such as scientific or forensic research, as well as donating your organs and tissues for transplant purposes. In New Zealand this kind of thing seems much more limited.
I am not religious and I would like to include such a donation in my will provided it is used for the purpose intended, and not for commercial gain. However, I have no idea what the possibilities in this country are, or even how to discover this information. I also don’t know what I would have to arrange to ensure that a wish like this was properly carried out. Is there anyone who knows more about this and can point me in the right direction? Ideally I would like to have all of my remains used for worthwhile purposes so there is nothing left over to be disposed of.
